Getting Outsmarted By The CEO

Ruan An An, who came from a family that had tens of billions worth in net value, returned to her alma mater to donate a building but fell in love with a college student there.

The boy wore a brilliant white shirt. His figure was slender and tall. With black hair, light-colored pupils, and a beautiful jawline, he looked incredibly handsome.

Ruan An An was dazzled by his charm when the two bumped into each other. The college student picked up the file Ruan An An had dropped on the ground and smiled: “Fellow student, watch your step.”

His voice sounded as clear as spring water and the person was as handsome as jade.

For the first time in her life, Ruan An An was in love.

She created an opportunity for herself by changing her identity.

As the story goes, a sweet girl with financial difficulty who constantly strived for self-improvement quickly fell in love with another poor yet handsome male college student. The two were in tune with each other in all aspects and got married in just half a year.

Although they were hard-pressed for money even after marriage, it did not affect their relationship.

On the night before their wedding anniversary, Ruan An An was dressed in one of her exquisite skirts at work, as usual, to attend a private meeting to meet the so-called behind-the-scenes major shareholder.

“Ms. Ruan,” the secretary introduced: “This is Gu Jue, Mr. Gu.”

Ruan An An stared at the man with whom she shared the same pillow in a 100 square meter apartment every night. He was impeccably attired, looking very sharp and honorable.

…She almost broke her high heels.

“An An,” He said as a warm smile melted into his face like snow: “Let us move to Lin Jiang Mansion, I have built a garden for you.”

Ruan An An: “…”

Damn you, the poor and handsome college student! It was all a set up!

This is a very good novel. I enjoyed it very much. Characters are likable and cute. Story is not easy to mtl but you can understand most of it.

There were some areas which weren't clearly described but overall it was a good read. It has its own strong points.

Have a good day.

5 stars for the happiness and cuteness of this story, not to mention the ML here is so amazing there is no way anyone reading this can have complaints.

this is cuteness overload and full of fluff.

the story is exactly how it says in the description, they both pretended to be poor only to be children from the top wealthy families. As the both of them already had feelings for each other when they met their whole relationship was pretty fast and mostly smooth-sailing. There was never anyone who got in... more>> between them nor any s*upid cannon-fodder characters.

however, in a more critical evaluation, the story has quite some flaws, things that prevent this from being top quality goods. The novel has a lot more potential to be even more amazing but a lot of things are not written well or included. Eg I would have loved it if apart from their journey and show-off of their love there was more enrichment of the plot by adding more business matters and allowing their high level of education to play a part. More family interactions would have been great too. Quite some past issues are just brushed off eg the thing about FL's mom+dad+step-dad, FL's past-after mom's 'death' and issues with her biological dad.

there definitely is a lot more elements that could be added to make the plot more interesting but this story has a lot of advantages itself.

-hidden identity romance

-campus romance

-large scale dog-food distribution

-top-grade ML who dotes and pampers MC

-cute friends & family dynamics

-fluffy couple banters

i really recommend you to read this, but don't expect strong plot-some things are silly XD but I love it. <<less

This seems really promising, the humor is great and it's full of fluff! It seems like a story with likeable leads that seem to be on the same page, comedic scenes, and very fluffy. I mean... the nickname she has for him is Perky Butt... lol. Maybe I'm being to fast to leave a review but I've been enjoying every update, if anything upsetting happens I guess I will edit this, but so far it's a novel I crave for and I might consider MTLing it, but it's too good... more>> to be ruined by MTL. <<less

So far, the novel is good! I really like the FL's honesty and straightforwardness. Another thing I appreciate is that FL isn't your typical dumb character, she has qualifications that match those of the ML. Would recommend!

Honestly this is more like a ‘You are the only one I like’. Where the Main couple have no relationship what so ever because they are not attracted to anyone. I think this is a good story to pick up since it has a comedy vibe to it and it’s got an interesting plot. I wonder if the plot will stay on track though. If you like a sweet plot twist kind of romance, then this novel is for you!

if you're looking for a funny story that is cute comforting and with no snow white type FL this might be your cup of tea it's a breath of fresh air in a sea of MCs with super powers and annoying side characters and I think the translator did a great job easy to read and pretty accurate that's what you ask for from a translator to be honest the opinions of solivagantsoul and FleetingCloud are pretty accurate so make sure to read them too! You should read the story... more>> and make your own opinion on it too! Have fun! ;) <<less

A good read. Quite a lot of fluff which is nice. It's really amusing, the number of clever ways they both hid their identity and lifestyles from each other. I like how both the leads are trying to be considerate towards each other while at the same time adding more white lies haha.

A very smooth and satisfying read for sure.

I wish it went more in-depth with what happened between the FLs mother and biological dad. Like he's scum but it was real vague about how (it was mtl so maybe that's why). I also wanted to see more interactions between the FL and her mum and step-dad (?). Like it felt so sudden how she just accepted the step-dad right off the bat, this mysterious gun-wielding man out of nowhere. I wanted to see them bond more since both, mother and a father figure, have been absent from her life. Aww, I wanted a cute father-daughter moment :') The ML and the step-dads interactions were hilarious tho

This is a very good story.

It explains how MC and ml's relationship develop with time.

Understanding and caring family and healthy relationship with ml.

It's also full of humour and fluff.

Ofc it's not without flaws or perfect story but I enjoyed it very much.

I hope that you also give it a try.

This novel just like my girlfriend is the cutest in the world which is boring. The concept was good and interesting, the description was the one who hooke me in, but the story just so so. I couldn't read any further bc how boring it was. Ugh maybe this isn't my cup of tea.
